The season ended today with great 1-0 over Swansea thanks to a goal from our top scorer DJ Campbell. I’m guessing the game wasn’t played at full pace but that win means we end the season in 16th place ten points clear of the relegation zone or 18 points off the playoffs depending on which way you look at it.
It’s a great improvement on last years 19th place finish and most importantly we are now slowly making progress to become a Championship side something that I never thought would happen when I started to support the Pool.
The summer is going to be interesting to see if Tony Parks gets the job, I hope he does based on the results in the last 10-15 games. Next years success won’t be decided in the transfer status of Charlie Adams and DJ Campbell but the signing of the duo would be a massive boost.
I’m hoping that Preston and Burnley go out in the play-offs so we have another round on Lancashire derbies, it would be good to see Leeds come up next season just so we can beat them and I’d love Newcastle with Sunderland to join WBA in the Championship for three massive games. Little Blackpool at St. James playing Newcastle United, I’d love it!
